The best source for everything Deep South USA


Deep South USA Blog

Southern Living sure love some Southern barbecue so they asked their readers in the 2013 'Cue Awards for the best rib joints in the South…

The magazine revealed its Top 15 "rib-stickin' joints" in the June issue just released. The winners were selected by 13,000 Southern Living readers who participated in a week-long online vote. Among the top 15, 11 were featured in our Deep South USA states:

  • Southern Soul Barbecure – St Simons Island, Georgia
  • Sam's BBQ – Marietta, Georgia
  • Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q – Decatur, Alabama
  • Corky's Ribs & BBQ – Memphis, Tennessee
  • Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q – Birmingham, Alabama
  • Charles Vergos' Rendezvous – Memphis, Tennessee
  • Dreamland Bar-B-Q – Tuscaloosa, Alabama (also located elsewhere in Alabama and Georgia)
  • Central BBQ – Memphis, Tennessee
  • Archibald's B.B.Q – Northport, Alabama
  • The Shed Barbecue & Blues Joint – Mobile, Alabama (also located in Mississippi)

Have you eaten at any of these places? We would love to know what you think!
